Red River diversion group tries to calm waters with letter

Opponents of a nearly $2 billion Red River flood control project that would mostly benefit North Dakota's largest city, Fargo, have enlisted the support of two powerful allies, including Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton. Dayton and another Minnesota Democrat, state Rep. Paul Marquart, have thrown their lot in with upstream residents who are unhappy that the diversion plans call for a holding area that would flood farmland, buildings and cemeteries in times when the channel is needed to protect 200,000 residents in the Fargo and Moorhead, Minnesota area.
